Buffalo, New Yor...
Okay, so I have a terrible track record when it comes to finishing projects meant for my boyfriend. Somewhere in my closet right now there is an unlined blazer and cuff-less shirt. For some reason, I find menswear so frustrating that I just abandon projects. Anyway, I managed to see this one through to completion, much to my dude’s delight (surprise).
The pattern wasn’t too difficult. I obsessed over the welt pockets for a while… but I think they came out just fine. I had to do some major fit adjustments though, because my bf is quite a bit smaller than the smallest burda size. I took some out of the side seams, but I took most of the room out of the back, by pretty much extending and expanding the back darts. That seemed to work all right.
He seems pretty happy with it.
The vest itself is made with a stiff navy corduroy and the lining is just a cotton print that I dyed to a denim blue.
